Mark Squires - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

Another terrific value this issue from Mendes, this is far more vigorous than the monovarietal Pássaros Loureiro, adding tension, concentration and zest. In its youth, it also seems like the pure essence of fruit, and it is gloriously aromatic. For its lovely, lingering finish alone, you will think this is underrated if you drink it young. Sourced from vines over ten years of age, there were 75,000 bottles produced.

Product Description:

White wine made from a selection of the best white Varieties in the Region: Alvarinho, Loureiro. Alvarinho conveys structure and body, Loureiro aromatic intensity acidity and minerality. Floral, fruity aroma. Fresh with mineral core and complex flavor. Good structure and well-balanced with great gastronomic ability.
